Abstract

The task of carrying out an effective and efficient decision on medical domain is a complex one, since a lot of uncertainty and vagueness is involved. Fuzzy logic and probabilistic methods for handling uncertain and imprecise data both provide an advance towards the goal of constructing an intelligent decision support system (DSS) for medical diagnosis and therapy. This work reports on a successfully developed DSS concerning pneumonia disease. A detailed and clear description of the reasoning behind the core decision making module of the DSS, is included, depicting the proposed methodological issues. The results have shown that the suggested methodology for constructing bayesian networks (BNs) from fuzzy rules gives a front-end decision about the severity of pulmonary infections, providing similar results to those obtained with physicians’ intuition.
